Bill Condon to Direct Breaking Dawn

By

The top choice to direct the fourth and final installment of the Twilight franchise, Bill Condon, will, in fact, direct the fourth and final installment of the Twilight franchise. In accepting this gig, Condon, the man responsible for Kinsey, Dreamgirls, and the movie-miming Pilobolus dancers from the Hugh Jackman–hosted Oscars, has agreed to take on a childbirth scene in which an expectant mother almost dies because her half-vampire baby breaks all her bones on its way out. We wish him luck. [EW]
